Miami Basketball Gets Their Coach, And It's Not Frank Martin

Over the past few weeks there has been some speculation that the Miami Hurricanes should contact Kansas State basketball coach Frank Martin for their vacant head coaching job. At least one report indicated that Martin would be interested in the job.

In fact, Martin gave an interview where a reasonable mind could conclude that he would be interested in at least talking to Miami but the 'Canes never called.

Miami has finally hired their head coach -- and it's not Frank Martin.

CBS Sports' Gary Parrish reports that a source has told him that longtime George Mason coach Jim Larranaga will be the next Miami basketball coach.    

So that's that. 

Martin has continually said he's happy at K-State but would at least listen to other offers. Apparently, that other offer never came -- at least not from Miami.
